"The Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Teresa Giudice held a signing for her third cookbook, "Fabulicious: Fast & Fit," at Wednesday in Wayne.
"Fabulicious: Fast & Fit," released May 15, is Guidice's third New York Times bestselling authentic Italian cookbook.
"My first two were so successful, I just wanted to keep going," she said.
Fast & Fit features 70 new heart-healthy recipes, many of which work well with Weight Watchers and gluten-free diets. All of the recipes take 30 minutes or less to prepare and cook, many of which require only 10 ingredients or less. In her book, Giudice details calorie counts and nutritional information for those health-conscious readers. The recipes were passed down through her family, and now Giudice is ready to share them with the world!
Her fans waited patiently to meet this reality television star and bestselling author, despite her late arrival. Guidice's fans were happily met by this TV star and her daughter Gabriella. She said she likes to involve her daughters; family and food are her two life passions.
"I want them to see what mommy does," Giudice said.
The first person in line for the book signing was Wayne resident Rosaida Greco. Greco is a huge fan of Giudice, both on television and her previous cookbooks, she said. Her sons and daughters are also huge fans. The family came to Costco at 2 p.m. for the 6 p.m. signing, did some shopping, and waited in line for their favorite Housewife from 4 p.m. until her arrival.
"I watch the show every week," Greco said. "I have the first two cookbooks too!"
Sisters Nicollette and Mackenzie Jacobs waited to meet their celebrity idol with friend Meagan Blaier. The three girls also arrived to Costco around 4 p.m.
Blaier bought Giudice's first two cookbooks, and couldn't wait to meet her when the third was released.
"We love her," the girls said.
"We watch her show every single week," Nicollette Jacobs added.
After meeting Giudice, the girls' love for her and the show grew stronger.
"I love her even more now!" Jacobs said.
"She's the best," Blaier said. "She's so cute!"
The line continued to grow during the book signing, with many teen girls and moms waiting to meet Giudice and her daughter.
